bad traits

I can't believe I have made it all the way to day 23 of the Blog Everyday in May challenge. I have only missed two or three days of the challenge (mainly because I didn't feel like I had anything to say for certain topics) & I am pretty proud that I have hung in there. It has been a lot of fun & I have found some awesome blogs that I wouldn't have otherwise found!

As I've gotten older I've come to realize there are certain things about me that are just not good character traits to have..

1) I am a conflict avoider. At first, most would say that isn't a bad trait. Some may even say it's a good trait, and at times it can be. But for the most part I feel like this isn't a trait I want to possess. I don't necessarily want to go around looking for conflicts, but I wish I was able to stand up for myself more and speak my mind when necessary. I am definitely a push over and sometimes let people take advantage of me. Not cool.

2) I am lazy. Not in an irresponsible way, but in the sense that I could lay in my bed all day and do absolutely nothing and be perfectly okay with it. I really enjoy wearing comfy clothes and lounging. Sometimes this turns into a bad thing when I have stuff I know I should be doing but I am just too lazy to do it. {like right now at 10:45 pm the night before I leave for my bachelorette trip and I haven't packed a single thing.... whooooops}

3) I am shy. I really dislike this about myself. I wish I was one of those people who could just walk up to anyone and ask for directions, ask for them to take a group picture, etc. A lot of people don't believe me when I tell them how shy I am because I am pretty outgoing when I am with my friends, but put me in a new and unfamiliar situation and I clam up. If there was one thing I could change about myself it would be this.

I hope you enjoyed getting to know me a little bit better today ; )


  1. Honestly, these are probably the three things I would post about myself as well. Especially the last two. I can force myself out of my shell with strangers but only for really important things (like work). But when it comes to asking someone directions, calling strangers on the phone, etc. I freeze!

  2. I don't like conflict either! this is def. something I need to work on!

  3. I am 100% with you on conflict avoiding! I will do anything to avoid conflict... including just ignoring it, which never ends up being the best decision. Hopefully we can get better at this. Hope you had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
